    Introduction

    1. Starting off the goals of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) aiming at achievement of integration and in conjunction among member states in all fields reaching to their unity, in agreement with the objectives of the new unified economic agreement between GCC states that laid the foundations for the common GCC market to develop common action between GCC states, and marked the steps of economic integration starting with creation of a free trade zone, then customs union, and then completion of GCC common market requirements, and ultimately the monetary and economic union as well as standardization of business, industrial and customs legislations applicable in the member states; 2. In realization of the GCC goals of creating Gulf Standardization Organization (GSO), promoting the economic integration march, going along with the customs union requirements including unification of standards and metrology in the member states, ensuring safety and quality of the goods entering GCC markets for the interests of their citizens, consolidation, follow up and implementation and unification by various standardization activities to participate in development of its production and services sectors, development of GCC intra-trade, protection of consumers, environment and public health, promotion of GCC industries and agricultural products to bolster GCC economy and maintain and preserve the gains of GCC states, and reduction of technical barriers to trade (TBT) in agreement with goals of the customs unification and GCC states concessions in World Trade Organization (WTO); 3. In implementation of the resolutions of the GCC Financial Economic and Cooperation Committee in its 72nd session (4-5 November 2006) “urging GSO to complete its efforts in setting unified procedures to apply GSO standards in GCC countries to be applied collectively in the same manner at inter-state entry ports in implementation of the customs notification requirements at the scheduled time and to streamline flow of commodities traffic”; 4. In implementation of the resolution of GSO Board of directors in its 6th session on 5 June 2007 approving commencement of implementing recommendations of the project of developing compliance verification in GCC states (RCAS) including “adoption of the concept that obligation should be based on the product essential requirements (safety, health and environment) as a basis for setting the new GCC approach to legislative obligation; 5. Whereas the laws and Regulations and control procedures applicable in the member states on safety features of Children toys vary in scope and content leading to barriers to trade and difference in tender conditions in the desired GCC common market, without tangible return of this difference on customer protection against the hazards that may arise from these products;

    6. Whereas barriers to the desired GCC common market should be lifted to allow selling of safe products with sufficient safety; 7. Whereas consistency and adaptation should be achieved through specifying the basic requirements and the unified rules between the GCC member states regarding consumer health and safety required in toys to allow placing them on the market and free movement in the customs union territory; 8. Whereas the scientific opinion as for the toxicity and environmental toxicity of toys (chemical components) has been taken into account regarding its hygienic effect on children; 9. Whereas the toys placed on the desired common market should not cause harm to the direct user or other parties; 10. Whereas the children toys should specify their criteria of minimum use limit, and should allow higher limits to cover any unseen conditions into account in view of children conduct that is less careful than adult behavior; 11. Whereas safety standards of children toys should be considered when placed on the market taking into account the requirement to abide thereby during the specified normal period of use for children toys; 12. And whereas GSO is entrusted with developing, approval, updating and publishing of GCC technical Regulations and standards together with procedures of GCC compliance verification for commodities, products, measurement and calibration instruments, definitions, technical symbols and terminology, and requirements of sampling, inspection, testing and calibration in accordance with the executive bylaws issued thereof, These Regulations of children toys have been issued stating the basic requirements to be met in children toys manufactured locally or imported to any of GCC states. Any of these products shall be allowed to be freely distributed in GCC member states market without impediment in custom ports unless there are reasons other than nonconformity to basic essential requirements. Note: This introduction and all annexes are integral part of these Regulations.
